According to Ramesh Aravind, the project is still in discussion stage and it has not been shelved. As the actors were busy with their respective films, they could not spend enough time on the Kick remake. Hence, it has been delayed. The original movie starred Ravi Teja and Ileana D'Souza in the lead roles, and it was a comedy flick.
In the meantime, Ramesh Aravind is busy with Tunturu, Mangana Kaiyalli Manikya, Chatrigalu Sir Chatrigalu and a Tamil film Machan. On the other end, Upendra is gearing up for the release of Topiwala and he is also busy penning the script for his next directorial film Upendra 2.
